Kilim Senneh


Size: 104cm x 84cm


Kilim refers to a type of flat-woven rug or tapestry that originates from various regions, including Turkey, Iran, the Balkans, the Caucasus, and Central Asia. Unlike pile carpets, Kilims are made using a weaving technique that produces a flat, thin fabric without the characteristic knots of other types of rugs. Here are some key characteristics and details about Kilims:

  • Materials: Kilims are typically made from wool, but cotton and sometimes silk may also be used. Wool is preferred for its durability and ease of dyeing.
  • Weaving Technique: Kilims are created using a flat-weaving technique, where the weft threads are tightly interwoven with the warp threads. This method produces a flat surface with no pile, making Kilims lightweight and reversible.
  • Designs and Patterns: Kilims are known for their bold geometric patterns, including diamonds, triangles, and other angular shapes. The patterns are often symbolic, carrying cultural and regional significance. Traditional motifs can include symbols of protection, fertility, and nature.
  • Colours: Kilims feature vibrant, natural colours derived from vegetable dyes. Common colours include red, blue, green, yellow, and brown. The use of natural dyes gives Kilims a rich, earthy appearance.
